We finally got home today. I am sorry I didn’t post many blog entrees while away. I meant to, but the internet, especially on the ship, was sloooooow and cost a good bit of money. But we are home, the internet isn’t per minute, so I can start doing recaps of the cruise. I figured for now I’d just get a few photos up and give some info on them. I have many more though!
Let’s start with the ship, The Liberty of the Seas. Currently the biggest ship out there, and was this motha huge! Later this year they release the Independence, which will be slightly bigger. Next year they release Genesis of the Seas, which is supposed to be a monster.
They had various theme parties and parades along the royal promenade, the “main street” down the center of the ship. This was from the “Dancin in the Streets” 70s party, complete with Village People. They came down and danced with everyone, and the woman were grabbed their butts. The poor Indian got his loin cloth flipped up a few times (he had on speedos).
The ship itself is beautiful, especially at night when everything is lit up. I mean this sucker is like Vegas, color changing lighting everywhere. It was very nice and romantical.
The first of these two photos is of an old bell tower in Labadie, Haiti. There wasn’t much around to indicate what it was for, common sense would be a church. However the only other nearby structure was actually a buccaneers trading post, or what was left of it. The second photo is of the outside of Rose Hall in Jamaica, which I’ve talked about in the last post.
Finally some photos of us. The photo on the left was the last night of the cruise. We were in this bar where the late night adult sing-a-longs happened. It was led by this guy Matt Yee who was hilarious. If you are ever on a cruise and he’s listed, go see the show! The photo on the right was taken one of the nights we went to one of the fancy restaurants on the ship. These are optional, but the food is worth the 20$ cover charge because on land you’d probably pay a good 100$ or more for these kind of amazing dinners.
Anyway, I’m pooped. We had to fly today for 2 1/2 hours then drive for 3, but we are home. Okay I was asleep for most of the flight and drive, but I’m still tired
